All you need to assemble these Patriotic Watermelon Pizzas are:
- Whole, sliced watermelon
- whipped cream of choice
- star-shaped watermelon
You can slice the watermelon ahead of time as well as cut them into star shapes and leave them on the table for an edible DIY activity for your kids at your next BBQ. Allow them to slather the whipped cream over the watermelon slices and make whatever holiday-inspired designs that speak to their hearts.
